But here's an interesting statement from Dr. Mercola who I usually find very reliable. He says that the cocoa plant takes up lead very efficiently and thinks that eating daily chocolate might build up lead in the body.
I have no idea if this is true, just passing on the comment.
It hasn't cut my own consumption, but I now think about it as I nibble my dark (85%) chocolate.
